No journal references for these, folks, but I hope you enjoy them
anyway. I can certainly attest to #26. #23 is irrelevant to me since
I'm tenured.

Quite possibly the best health-related tea post in ages. For once I
100% agree with all of these findings, except for the dropsy and
menstrual pains and I have no reason to doubt them.

A sales pitch for 17th century Europeans or the modern day Chinese.
There is a little bit of truth in folk remedies but any statistically
YMWV will be the placebo effect. I do believe an ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of cure. I'd hate to be a kid today growing up on
junk food. Its worse than cigarettes.
